We also visited a local nature/wild bird store and spoke with the owner about attracting birds to our yard. We picked up the GREATEST matching game, with 50 types of birds! The cards are heavy and give the common and scientific names. It also comes with a huge poster.
Miss B has been particularly interested in horses the past few weeks. She is taking a Horse class at our co-op and is learning about what it takes to purchase and maintain your own horse! She has a friend at our church who is very interested in riding and has her own horse, and last weekend Miss B went to her riding lesson and an eventing competition. At the library we checked out some books about horses (many of them American Girl) and she also downloaded Black Beauty on her Kindle and started reading it this week! Last night we watched Secretariat as well. The whole family is learning about horses now. This is INTEREST LED LEARNING at its best!
While I made lunch one day, the kids went outside together to finish GMan's Lego sticker book he has been avidly working on. I snapped this picture because it symbolizes to me the bond that my children are developing. They truly are each other's best friends, and for this I am so grateful!
I'm happily joining Kris for the Weekly Wrap Up!
